Join us at the Applebee’s in North Babylon, NY to discuss Connie Willis’ Hugo Award-winning novel, <i>Doomsday Book</i>. It’s a chance to talk about a cool book with people who appreciate things like that, and even if you haven’t read this one, join us and help us pick our next.
If you buy the book from Amazon, please use the link at the right of our front page. This costs you nothing at all, but gives ICON Science Fiction (the non-profit behind both LI-CON and I-CON) a bit of income.
I hope to see you there!
Even if you can’t be at LI-CON on Saturday night, you can still listen to Paul’s concert. Just visit Paul’s YouTube channel:
He will be streaming his concert live!
(It will definitely be more fun if you come listen in person, though.)
We’re very happy to announce that Middlehaven will be hosting a LARP at LI-CON 2!
LI-CON is happy to announce that writer and engineer Mackenzie Reide will be appearing at LI-CON.
Our schedule is now hosted at sched.org. This means that you can check if from almost any device, and that if you use the Sched app you will always see the latest schedule, including any last-minute changes. You can also use Sched to find when a particular person will be appearing (click on “Speakers”). It’s pretty slick, and we hope you’ll like it.
Thanks to implausibly hard work by our Head of Programming, Heather Dawn, the schedule is posted! Now you can plan your exciting and fun weekend at LI-CON.
Also, when you see Heather at the con, thank her. This really was a lot of work.
Also thanks to Marketing Maven Katrina for putting it into the published format.
Also, thanks to everyone in Programming for getting this all set up.
See you at the con!
Voice actor and singer Kristen Nelson returns for LI-CON 2. Everyone who knows Kristen will be delighted, and all you poor, deprived folk who haven’t yet had the pleasure have something new to look forward to!
See you in 10 days.
This year we have Scott Goldiner and Lost Sliver Productions providing our game show programming.

The 25,000 Pyramid: Sunday
It’s the legendary game show of wits and words. Watch as our celebrities and contestants battle through the tournament and make their way to big money as they climb THE $25,000 PYRAMID!
LI-CON is especially proud to announce Melanie‘s appearance because our “big brother” convention, I-CON, helped her get her start. She’s gone on to tremendous success in both anime (Chizuru in Media Blasters’ first ever in-house dub of Holy Knight) and video games like Lords of Xulima and Genius Defense Force.If you’d like to hear how our convention helped her get started, come to her panels and I’m sure she’ll be glad to explain.
Next to join the lineup for LI-CON 2 is Voice Actor Michael A. Zekas. Michael has gone on to success in video games–hits such as Technobabylon and Lords of Xulima–as well as anime with the Media Blasters dub of Holy Knight and audio drama in the original work The Amazing Adventures of Action Jack & Obvious Girl. Come join him for some colorful adventures this weekend. It’s just as exciting behind the scenes making games and animation as it is enjoying them on a lazy Saturday.
